Next to the house are the former mill owner's house, a painter's studio, an old bread oven, a pond and a large pool overlooking the whole discreetly.
About 300 years ago, the millers were busy milling wheat or barley. The monks from the nearby Loc Dieu’s Abbaye, were piling flour bags on horse-drawn carts with wooden and steel wheels. On the path that creeps up the hill, there are still stones that bear the marks of the carts used by the monks. The Fonclause mill was a hive of activity during this time period.
